Seeds often contain bacteria. In order to reduce seedling diseases, ensure the growth of vegetable seedlings, allow yourself and your family to eat healthy vegetables, and avoid your labor halfway through, it is best to carry out simple disinfection treatment before planting.Soaking seeds in warm water is sufficient. Soak the seeds in hot water at 60°C for 10-15 minutes, then lower the water temperature to 30°C, continue soaking for 3 to 4 hours, and then take it out to dry.For seeds that are not clean on the surface, placed for a long time or have been contaminated, the drug solution soaking method can be used. Generally, 100 times formalin solution is commonly used, and the seeds are soaked in clear water for 3 to 4 hours, and then put into the drug solutionSoak for 20 minutes, take it out and rinse with water.

Seeds need to be germinated depending on the situation. Tomato, pepper, eggplant, cucumber and other fruits and vegetables seeds germinate slowly and can be germinated. The seeds must be soaked before germinating, but the soaking time should not be too long. After testing, cucumber is used1 to 2 hours, 3 to 4 hours for soaking peppers, eggplants and tomatoes is more appropriate including the soaking time during seed disinfection treatment. Put several layers of gauze, filter paper or absorbent paper towels on the bottom of the seedling tray, soak it with clean water,The soaked seeds are dewatered and placed in a seedling tray at 28~30℃ for 1-5 days, until the seeds germinate and become white, then they can be sown. During the germination period, if the seeds are dry, add water to the seedling tray, To keep the bedding such as soaked gauze and keep the seeds moist.

> Seeding
For direct sowing, just sow the seeds directly into a planting container of appropriate size. If transplantation is required, first select a container with a moderate size of plastic or glass as the "seedling tray". Put a moderate pH in the containerCultivating soil you can buy it at a gardening store or agronomic market, spread vegetable seeds into a container, and then cover with 0.5-1cm deep soil. Remember that the seeds will not germinate if they are too deep.
Proper temperature, sufficient moisture and oxygen are the three elements for seed germination. Place the container in a warm, well-ventilated place, and water it appropriately For most vegetable species, watering once a day is the right amount.
It is best to disinfect the seeding tray with 50% bleach or other disinfectant before sowing to reduce the chance of contaminating the seeds

When the seedlings reach a certain size, they must be moved to other containers for planting in time. For example, tomatoes, eggplants, etc., when there are generally 4 to 5 true leaves, melons do not exceed 2 to 3 true leaves, and cabbage and cabbage are in 4─When transplanting 6 true leaves. Be careful not to damage the young roots of the seedlings when transplanting. You can fully water the soil or substrate before digging the vegetable seedlings to make the roots more soil or substrate, which can not only reduce root damage, but alsoReduce and increase water absorption, and survive faster after transplanting. Generally, the planting depth of leafy vegetables is so as not to bury the lowest leaves, otherwise it will easily cause rot.
